Welcome to the Premium Starter Kit: Peace & Calming, The “Chill-Out” Potion

Today, Lindsey Barger shares her Peace & Calming love and tips! This is the first post in our mini series on the new oils and products featured in the refreshed Premium Starter Kit.

Back in 2013, when I first signed up with Young Living, this little gem was a staple in the Premium Starter Kit. It was an immediate family favorite, especially with the littles.

They loved the smell and it was frequently in the diffuser.

Well, to be honest, I believe it was a love/hate relationship for my kids. It was the calming effect it had on them that they hated. This is where my love of Peace & Calming came in. It was my magic “Chill-Out” potion! It made my husband’s witch doctor jokes a little more valid.

If you are a parent you know about the glorious tantrums a 3 year old can throw. I remember the first time I thought to pull out the Peace & Calming when my precious little boy was performing his best impression of Linda Blair. He was on the floor arching and flailing, screeching and howling. It was the kind of fit in which it is dangerous to try to pick the little darling up. The mom sporting a busted lip kind of fit. Here is one of the great things about using essential oils; you don’t actually have to put the oil on the kid to see the effect. I skeptically put a drop of oil in my hand and rubbed it around 3 times.

His eyes were squeezed tightly shut so he was unaware of my hand about six inches above his nose. With the screeching he was sucking in deep breaths and inadvertently took a deep inhale of the Peace & Calming. His eyes shot open. He sucked in two more deep breaths and relaxed on to the floor. I stood there in amazement.

What just happened? Like I said, I was initially skeptical that this oil would do anything at all, especially with the magnitude of the fit he was throwing. Yet here he was, his breathing returning to normal, his face relaxed, he got up and calmly sat next to me on the couch, like everything was fine! What in the world?! I don’t know what I was expecting exactly, but I’m sure it couldn’t have been that.

After about two more fits remedied with Peace & Calming, my 3 year old was catching on. At this point he would hilariously try to cover his nose and mouth so he wouldn’t smell the oil, even before I would get it out. This was my signal to do so.

We were both learning how effective the oil was. He knew he wanted to be mad and finish his fit, so he would cover his face. I wanted him to chill him out, even if I couldn’t pick him up. Peace & Calming also worked very well on my independent, strong willed 5 year old. And... it worked on me.

I will admit, mommin’ can bring out a not so flattering side of me as well. And that very real moment when your kid brings you the bottle of Peace & Calming and asks, “Momma, do you need some oils?” It can be quite humbling to have your kid call you on your behavior. Clearly it was as much a testament to my kids as it was too me.

Tame your toddler’s (and your’s, while you’re at it) emotional outburst with this ultra-popular blend. Welcome back to the PSK, Peace & Calming!

Peace & Calming: Isn’t Just for the Kids

We all have stressful situations. Knowing and preparing before entering that situation can be very beneficial. Here are just a few situations the adults in our family have used P&C.

  • Visiting The Revenue Office

  • Going to the grocery store on a Saturday

  • Leading children’s church on Sunday

  • Helping with Youth Group on Wednesday night

  • Homeschooling...

  • When someone just can’t relax and fall asleep at night

  • Holiday events and family gatherings

  • At the end of a LONG Monday, when you just need an extended and uninterrupted Epsom Salt bath with a couple of drops of Peace & Calming

Putting on a little Peace & Calming will also affect others around you. What a wonderful side effect! Plus, it smells amazing.

Back in the PSK!

We are so excited to have it back in our Premium Starter Kit!

I will admit, I’m an emotional creature and having Peace & Calming in the PSK was such a blessing because it was an oil I could sell! It has so many benefits and covers so many body systems, how could it not be? Check out its ingredients and the associated body systems.


  • Tangerine- Emotional Balance, Immune System, Skin

  • Orange- Digestive and Immune Systems, Emotional Balance, Skin

While the oils are the spotlight of the kit, this week we’ll cover what else you can look forward to in your PSK: more ways oil, share, learn and dig deeper into what Young Living has to offer.   

Ways to Oil

During the series, we made a lot of suggestions for your Essential Oil routine: Applying oils to your feet, directly to stressed muscles, under your tongue and more. The PSK includes two ways to help you use the oils in your day-to-day routine. A rollerball helps you apply an oil just where you need it. And of course, a diffuser is a great way to aromatically enjoy the oils. So for starters, the PSK includes: 

  • AromaGlide™ Roller Fitment
  • Diffuser

Ways to Share

If you want to share an oil with friends or family, you’ll find two easy ways to do just that. You can hand them a sample packet or give them a sample oil bottle with a few drops of your favorite oil. Cards with key information will help remind your friend how to use the oil. Start sharing with these easy PSK tools:

Oil of the Week: Peppermint

Last (but not least), we’ll talk particulars of Peppermint in our final Oil of the Week installment. 

Pass the Peppermint!

Peppermint is in the same family as Lavender. As a relative of the Swiss Army knife of Essential Oils, it’s not surprising that Peppermint is also a versatile, everyday oil. Most people have smelled or tasted Peppermint, but this mighty mint can do a lot more than spice up brownies (but really, these brownies are delicious).

Put some pep in your step by adding a drop of Peppermint to a glass of water or tea. We also love Peppermint for digestive support and post-workout massage. Tip: Only put Essential Oils in glass or stainless steel containers.

You can reach for Peppermint throughout your day! Here are a few tips to help you get started.

Digestive Support

Just like DiGize or Lemon, Peppermint helps support many facets of healthy intestinal function.

  • Travel: If plane travel gets you down, try inhaling Peppermint to calm down after takeoff.
  • Pregnancy: Oily mamas-to-be, give yourself a treat in those early days by inhaling or diffusing Peppermint.  
  • Appetite: Take a bite out of overeating by inhaling Peppermint to satiate cravings before you cave.

All in Your Head

  • Head Support: Refresh head or sinuses by inhaling and/or applying Peppermint directly to your temples and back of neck.

Pro Tip: Peppermint is a hot oil, so test out your tolerance with a carrier oil before you try it neat.

  • Concentration: Try diffusing Peppermint and Lemon when tackling homework or projects that take focus.

De-Stress & Cool Down

  • Post Workout Massage: Treat tired muscles to a soothing Peppermint massage. Just dilute a few drops in your favorite carrier oil and apply as needed.
  • Cool Down: You can also use Peppermint as a way to cool down on a hot summer day. Try it on the back of your neck for a refreshing treat.

DIY Natural Solution

Clear your cobwebs and then mix up this DIY Spray to help keep your home pest free. Combine the following ingredients in an empty 16-oz glass spray bottle.

  • 5-7 drops Peppermint essential oil
  • 1 Squirt of eco-friendly dish soap
  • 1 TB of white vinegar (optional)  
  • Warm water  

Then spray on window frames, doorways and the dark corners where unwanted creatures often hang out. Bonus: This spray is kid and pet friendly and smells great!

Oil of the Week: R.C. – Don't Leave Home Without It!

I have used R.C. for the past 15 years. It is an amazing blend formulated to maintain and support a healthy respiratory system. I always think (and tell people) It's kind of like that old MasterCard commercial – don't leave home without it!  

When you see Young Living's R.C. Essential Oil, think respiratory support! 

When you see Young Living's R.C. Essential Oil, think respiratory support! 

All About R.C.

My Favorite Ways to Use It

One of my favorite ways to use R.C. takes just a couple of seconds. I drip a couple of drops in the palm of my hand, rub my hands together three times, cup my hands around my nose and mouth and then inhale it deeply. I love its invigorating scent!

Essential Oil Pro Tip: When I inhale an Essential Oil deeply several times, I move my hands away from my face when I exhale. This helps the essential oil not evaporate as quickly. 

Here are a few more ways to try incorporating R.C. into your Essential Oil routine:

  • Rub R.C. on your feet or chest before exercise to uplift and inspire.
  • Massage three drops on your feet before bedtime to encourage an atmosphere of comfort.
  • Diffuse to create a comforting aroma.
  • Use in place of Aroma Siez™ in Young Living’s Raindrop Technique®.

The Ingredients

R.C.™ Essential Oil Blend is a unique combination of Cypress, Spruce, and three types of
Eucalyptus (E. globulus, E. radiata, and E. citriodora) oils, and includes the naturally occurring
constituent limonene.

Questions? Ask Away!

We'd love to help out with any questions you have about R.C. or any of the oils we discuss (and adore) on the blog! Leave us a comment or contact us today!  

Oil of the Week: DiGize

One of the greatest things about essential oils is that they know how to do their job even better than we know how to use them. The proper use of an oil could promote normal and healthy functions of that particular body system.

If you and your family happen to eat food, DiGize should be one of your go-to oils. It helps support digestive and gastrointestinal systems as well as intestinal function.

No More 20 Questions for “Funny Tummy”

For instance, your little one comes to you, “Mommy, my tummy feels funny.” In the past, I would run down the list of possible causes. What did he eat? Has he pooped today? Has he had enough water to drink? Is it his stomach, his bowels, or something else?

That was my first child.

Now I don’t have to spend my time worrying about cause and effect, I can skip right to solution! Go get your DiGize!

With my second, things are easier. Even though my 6-year-old can’t quite read the labels, he has his own special bottle with a rollerball that he can identify. When his tummy needs some TLC, I just point to our oils cache. He knows where to find his DiGize, and brings it to me. No twenty questions, no worry, just God’s incredible design working for my kiddo.

Most Valuable (and Versatile) Travel Companion

For me, the oil that I used the most while in a foreign country was probably DiGize. My gut was not prepared for the AMAZING food … and questionable food preparation. My digestive system suffered a little, but only a little.

If my tummy felt funny, the DiGize was ready for action. And, yes, I did smell like peppermint and fennel most of my trip.

On a plane, DiGize. On a boat, DiGize. On a narrow, winding, boulder-strewn mountain path in a vehicle that was really only meant for smooth pavement, DiGize. Gorging myself on the best fish I’ve ever tasted, DiGize. Drinking water that was very suspicious, DiGize. Overheated from the tropical environment, DiGize. And let’s not forget when Aunt Flo comes to visit a few days out of the month, you’ve got it, DiGize.

Let’s Talk Application

  • Behind your ears is a great preemptive measure before riding in vehicles.
  • Rub a drop or two in a clockwise motion topically over the abdomen.
  • Use as a compress over the belly.
  • Inhale a little.
  • A drop or two of DiGize Vitality under your tongue after a heavy meal.
  • And of course, the Vita Flex Points on the ankles and the bottoms of the feet.

Let’s Break It Down

Here are the therapeutic grade essential oils (and their special properties) that make this blend so special:

  • Tarragon: promotes relaxation
  • Ginger: warm and calming
  • Peppermint: cooling and soothing
  • Juniper: supports plumbing efficiency
  • Fennel: supports overall digestive function
  • Lemongrass: uplifting and lymphatic system support
  • Anise: supports digestion
  • Patchouli: calming and relaxing

AND to Sum It Up!

All of these oils work together for the greater good of the gut.  Whether you need things to slow down, speed up, deflate, chill, or just run smoothly, DiGize can be that oil to support your well-oiled machine.  

No 20 questions, just a drop or two. Questions? Leave them in the comments! 

Oil of the Week: Lavender

Lavender...where to begin? So many uses, so little time! I don't know if I could think of one person who could not benefit from Lavender! We love having it in our family; all 4 of us have at least one way to use it on a regular basis.  

Lavender: An Oil for Every Member of the Family

Lavender is versatile. We love it as a part of our nighttime routines, skin soothing support and, of course, its fresh scent. So many uses make it a great starter oil. 

Lavender is versatile. We love it as a part of our nighttime routines, skin soothing support and, of course, its fresh scent. So many uses make it a great starter oil. 

#1 Baby Benefits

This is my favorite way to use Lavender currently! I have a 10 month old who is not quite old enough to communicate why she may be fussing. Mamas, you know the drill:

  • Does she have a tooth pushing through?
  • Does she feel warm?
  • Is it a season change that’s causing the sniffles?
  • Is she restless?

You never quite know the answer! But I can tell you this, I always have the same answer...rub some lavender on! It is so versatile and supports so many systems that chances are, it will give her relief in one way or another!

I just apply it on her feet, and then on her chest for respiratory support and to help her relax.

Fun fact: Did you know our feet are our most porous part of our body? Apply an oil to the feet and it will absorb and know just the right spot to travel to!

#2 Toddler Triumphs   

In addition to our sweet little girl, we have a sweet (but tough!) 31/2 yr old boy. I must say Lavender is great to have around for soothing the many bumps and bruises of toddlerhood! I apply straight on at times, or dilute with some coconut oil when he's a little more sensitive.

#3 Happy Hubby Habits

My husband has a lot of stress from day to day and needs a little extra assistance calming his mind at night. To help, we start it in the diffuser a little before bedtime. We both love how it promotes a relaxing atmosphere as we get ready for bed.

DIY Tip: I've heard of others making a linen spray and spraying it on their sheets and pillows as well!

#4 Mama Merits

As far as I'm concerned I have two favorite uses for lavender. Sorry I tried to narrow it down to just one, but I couldn't!

Game-Changer at Season Changes

The first is during the change of seasons. This was actually how I was introduced to essential oils! I used to battle sinus irritation whenever the temperature changed (which happens pretty frequently in Arkansas!). One weekend, I was staying with a dear friend who used essential oils. She recommended a few and after that I was hooked! Now when I sense a change in the weather I apply a drop or two directly over my cheekbones and along my neck. Sometimes, I put a drop under my tongue as well for quicker relief!

After-Sun Soother

I also have another dilemma: You see, I'm a girl who loves the sun! Like I really feel like I can never get enough of it! Unfortunately, my German descent doesn't agree with this. Yup, I have the blonde hair blue eyes and very very fair skin, so I usually have to suffer the consequences after a long day in the sunshine. This is where lavender becomes my best friend! When I get home or even throughout the day while I'm out, I take a few drops of lavender, mix it with coconut oil and rub it wherever needed! I love the smell of the coconut/lavender combo and it's very soothing to the skin!

Lavender Vitality: A Refreshing Recipe Addition

Another great way to use Lavender? In recipes! Yes, Young Living makes a Lavender Vitality oil that can be ingested!

Honey Lavender Lemonade

Check out this summertime favorite on the Young Living blog. It’s so cool and refreshing!!

Lavender Blackberry Scones

Take a good scone recipe and mix in a handful of blackberries. Then, make a frosting of powdered sugar, lemon juice and a drop of Lavender Vitality. Drizzle on top of your freshly baked scones....mmmm.

Here are a few other creative ways to use Lavender...

  • Add a drop of Lavender to your tube of mascara to support healthy lashes.
  • Add a few drops to wool dryer balls to refresh your laundry (I especially love to do this for our sheets and my little ones "blankies").
  • Get some raw Shea butter and mix with coconut oil, add a few drops of Lavender for a luxurious whipped body butter!
  • Apply a drop under the tongue or along the neck before mowing the lawn for preventative respiratory support.
  • Diffuse with other oils for a lovely smelling home. Some of my favorites to mix with are lemon, orange or eucalyptus blue.

What's your favorite way to use Lavender? We'd love to hear about it! Any questions? Contact me at inspirationsbyrae@gmail.com

Oil of the Week: Copaiba

Unlike most of us who are reading this, I did not get copaiba in my premium starter kit. I joined long before Young Living added this magnificent oil to the PSK. I actually learned about Copaiba from a co-worker at my corporate job when she mentioned how often she used the oil.

Copaiba is an enhancing oil. Anytime you apply an oil you can layer Copaiba on top of that to maximize the effectiveness and benefits you are receiving. Trust me, it is a great way to use Copaiba on a daily basis.

Copaiba is an enhancing oil. Anytime you apply an oil you can layer Copaiba on top of that to maximize the effectiveness and benefits you are receiving. Trust me, it is a great way to use Copaiba on a daily basis.

Cool Copaiba Benefits 

I, being the oily geek that I am, immediately started to research. I was thoroughly amazed by all of the fantastic benefits. Here are a few, Copaiba...

  • Supports the respiratory, cardiovascular, urinary, and digestive systems
  • Supports a healthy mood
  • Supports your body’s response to irritation with special nutrient beta caryophyllene
  • Supports healthy gums and oral health
  • Exhibits cleaning power

That night, as soon as I got home, I added Copaiba to my Essential Rewards order and I have been using it regularly ever since.

Skin-tastic Copaiba Benefits

Oily mamas, listen up! One of the first ways I used this oil was for skin support. Like most first-time mothers my skin bears those familiar (but beautiful none the less) reminders that you once carried a baby. Did you know that copaiba is an emollient, and that copaiba oil may help boost the secretion of collagen and elastin in your body? No? Oh boy, this is going to be your new best friend! Try not to trip over the kiddo in your haste to get your oil out of the kit.

Even these past few days as I have researched and refreshed my memory on this Brazilian beauty, I am still awestruck at the sheer awesomeness that this bottle packs in each precious drop.

A Few More Fun Facts

Here are a few of the stunning facts that I rediscovered about copaiba:

  • The copaiba evergreen tree grows up to 100 feet and a single tree can offer up to twelve gallons of oil annually. It is distilled from a tapped tree, making it a sustainable rainforest resource.
  • Copaiba may be relatively new to the modern world, but it has been used by native Brazilians for at least 4 centuries.
  • Today in the United States, copaiba resin is used mostly as a soothing fragrance in soaps, bubble baths, detergents, creams, and lotions.
  • Most of the world uses it as a lacquer or varnish! What a huge loss this is! Or ... maybe not, since that means there is more of this beautiful oil for you and I to use!

So if you have yet to break open the seal of this magnificent oil from your starter kit, please take a moment to go do so now. I’ll wait for you to come back and smell its light woody and honeyed aroma. 

Be sure to add it to your daily regimen to support all of those amazing body systems or enhance the benefits of other oils you use. 

If you are running low on this Brazilian beauty be sure to add it to your ER order today, you will be so happy that you did (did I mention that this oil helps to brighten your mood already?)!

Oil of the Week: Purification, Always a Conversation Starter

"Your house smells so clean and fresh, what is that?" 

"Thanks! It's Young Living Purification oil in my diffuser."

I cannot tell you how many times I've had this conversation. Even my seasoned oil users sometimes don’t believe that it's Purification because it smells so different in the diffuser than in the bottle. Although, it is called PURIFICATION ... so it shouldn't be surprising that it smells so pure and clean.

Diffusing, though, it just one of the many reasons that I LOVE Purification and why it is one of my favorite oils of all times. Let’s start with the basics:

Young Living Purification, a fresh blend of Citronella, Lemongrass, Lavandin, Rosemary, Tea Tree, and Myrtle essential oils.

Young Living Purification, a fresh blend of Citronella, Lemongrass, Lavandin, Rosemary, Tea Tree, and Myrtle essential oils.

Purification Essential Oil Blend helps freshen the air and eliminate odors with its unique combination of Citronella, Lemongrass, Lavandin, Rosemary, Tea Tree, and Myrtle essential oils, and naturally-occurring compounds cineol, neral, and geranial (research these compounds, it is very interesting information!).

Let’s break down some of those ingredients.


Many of us know about citronella because it is an ingredient in almost every insect repellant on the market, but did you know it has many other useful qualities? For example, citronella can be relaxing, purifying to the skin, while also supporting the respiratory system and normal digestion. Citronella also has a very refreshing and uplifting scent. Great oil, huh?


Historically, lemongrass has been used for purifying and supporting the digestive system but it can also help maintain healthy circulation and promote the lymphatic system. Lemongrass is also a great oil to massage on with some coconut oil to maintain healthy tissue and ligaments. Lemongrass is considered a “hot”oil; avoid skin irritation by diluting before application.


Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) is YL’s typical lavender that we all know and love. Lavandin is from our farm in Provence, France and it is actually a cross between our Lavandula augustifolia and spike lavender (Lavendula latifolia). Now, why would YL want to use Lavandin instead of Lavender in Purification oil?

I believe it is because Lavandin is known for its purifying constitutes  it is called Purification after all! In Europe, it's actually very common for veterinary clinics to clean their cages with Lavandin. Lavandin does have similar calming effects like Lavender, and may help support the respiratory system and promote healthy circulation.


Want a little history lesson after our science lesson above? Many of us know Rosemary is an ingredient in our beloved oil blend Thieves (do you know the story of Thieves?) but here is a lesson in ancient history about Rosemary. In ancient Greece (about 1,000 BC), rosemary was burned as an incense. Later cultures believed that it would ward off evil, a practice that would eventually become adopted by those who wanted to protect themselves, like modern day immune support! Rosemary may also support a healthy respiratory system and may help promote mental clarity and concentration.

Tea Tree

Tea Tree is a very popular oil. It has many uses that we have all come to know and love. Tea Tree has a very clean fresh scent and when applied to the skin may help promote healthy looking skin. Tea Tree is known for its purifying properties and may aid the body’s natural response to skin injury and irritations.


Myrtle oil has a mild smell but can punch powerful results! Myrtle is a gentle oil and is typically a “go to” for supporting the respiratory system in children. Myrtle may also help promote healthy skin and could be good to rub on after a hard workout. Myrtle is also referenced several times in Bible, here are a few places you can find it: Nehemiah 8:15, Isaiah 41:19, Isaiah 55:13 – enjoy!

So … do you love Purification yet? I DO! Here are some more product tips you might enjoy.

Product Tips:

  • Add Purification essential oil blend to your washing machine to freshen laundry.
  • Add a couple drops of Purification essential oil blend to shoes to help neutralize odors.
  • Add a few drops to a cotton ball to help eliminate stale air in the office or your child’s room.
  • Diffuse Purification essential oil blend to dispel unpleasant odors and clear the air of impurities (I love adding Orange Oil with it).
  • Diffuse Purification essential oil blend to eliminate odors after the dog returns from playing outdoors in the rain.
  • Apply topically when going outdoors for a pest-free experience.
  • Diffuse to repel bugs, insects and mice.
  • Add a drop or two to your favorite moisturizer morning and evening for healthy looking skin.
  • Apply to skin to aid the body’s natural response to skin irritation or injury.
  • Add a few drops to a glass spray bottle with water for a multipurpose spray solution (I NEVER leave home without this!).

Oil of the Week: Stress Away

STRESS-AWAY : verb pronounced \ˈstres-ə-ˈwā\! Seems pretty self-explanatory right? Well it is, but oh it is so much more.

Stress Away: Self-Explanatory? Not So Fast. 

How does Stress Away help keep stress away? The perfect combination of Copaiba, Lime, Cedarwood, Ocotea and Lavender, of course.  

How does Stress Away help keep stress away? The perfect combination of Copaiba, Lime, Cedarwood, Ocotea and Lavender, of course.  

Ingredient #1: Copaiba

Stress Away contains the essential oil Copaiba. Copaiba contains B-caryophyllene. Why, yes it does. So are you wondering why we care about B-caryo…whatever? Let me fill you in. It is a chemical present in numerous plants including Cannabis which is being studied at fervent levels for being able to assist in feeling anxious and other emotional support concerns, among many other human issues.

Ingredient #2: Lime

Stress Away also contains lime. You should really look up lime, because it has a tremendous benefits including emotional, skin and lymphatic system support...just to get you curious. It also has a really fresh smell and taste.

Ingredient #3: Cedarwood

Stress Away also contains cedarwood. We can guess how God feels about cedarwood since the sacrifices were often given in recipes calling for cedarwood (Lev 14 and Num 19), and Solomon’s Temple, was made of cedarwood (1 Kings 6). Can’t you just close your eyes and take yourself there?

Cedarwood is my nite-nite oil when I am overwhelmed (that isn’t a disease condition yet is it?).  Cedarwood is full of sesquiterpines, which means it is heavier and the smell will hang with you a little longer, and who doesn’t want that? 

Ingredient #4: Ocotea

Next is Ocotea. This is one of my personal favorites. I have been able to curb my sugary food cravings by dropping one drop under my tongue when I am feeling naughty. I don’t know if they were thinking of me when they made this oil, but I am a comfort eater when I get stressed, so having this little beauty in Stress Away is like – BONUS!

Ingredient #5: Lavender

And last, but not least, is lavender. I don’t need to tell you how this oil has been celebrated, all over the world throughout all time, for its relaxing and soothing properties.

How To: Get Your Stress Away On! 

So all that information to say what? Get your Stress Away on! Give it to your friends, your neighbors, your family. Take a bottle with you when you go to the office, for when that special co-worker comes around. You know which one I’m talking about. Diffuse it when people come over,  or in your car (it helps with road-rage … ask me how I know), give it as a house-warming gift, or a graduation gift, or a wedding gift. These are all stress-filled times in a person’s life. There is NO wrong time to give the gift of Stress Away.

Questions? No Stress! 

So live your life for those wonderful moments and just let the Stress fly Away! Have questions? Comment or email Michelle at michelle@oilrevival.com!  

Oil of the Week: Lemon

Welcome back to our Oil of the Week series! Last week, we covered PanAway. Next up? Lemon Vitality. Just to recap: each week we’ll be covering an oil or blend from the Young Living Premium Starter Kit. And by covering, we mean offering real, day-to-day tips to help you start using the oils now.

Lemon: Freshly Squeezed Citrus Goodness

You’ve probably had a slice of lemon in your water, and you’ve probably used traditional cleaners with a bright, lemony scent. So you already know some benefits of lemon: it tastes and smells wonderful. But what can Young Living Lemon Vitality do for you? Yup, that’s what we’re here to share.  

Citrus Secret: Limonene

Young Living Lemon Vitality supports mood, skin, digestion and more! 

Young Living Lemon Vitality supports mood, skin, digestion and more! 

75 lemons. That’s what one 15-ml bottle of Lemon Vitality contains. So, it takes just a drop or 2 to reap the benefits of Limonene, a naturally occurring chemical found in citrus rinds. Limonene helps support body functions inside and out, as well as boosting natural house cleaning. Some top benefits include:

  • Healthy, balanced skin
  • Digestive wellness
  • Weight management
  • Mood support
  • Heightened focus
  • Natural flavoring
  • Natural cleaning

Sensitive Skin Watch

Lemon can make your skin more sensitive to UV light and sun. So avoid direct sunlight for 24 hours after application.

4 Ways to Use Lemon Vitality

#1: Diffusion

Try not to smile when you walk into a room with a lemony fresh scent. Lemon is known for its mood-boosting aroma. But beyond that, lemon can help support mental focus. Try diffusing while studying, reading or writing.

Oily Moms-to-Be: Try to diffuse or inhale lemon to beat those morning (noon and night) queezies. 

#2: Cleaning

If you ever have the chance to go to a Premium Starter Kit class with some Young Living mentors, you’ll probably hear stories about how lemon saved the day with that weird sticky stuff that nothing else could get out. Lemon is a go-to for chemical-free cleaning. It works AND it smells fresh. When in doubt, reach for lemon.

And lemon can also enhance Thieves household cleaner! Check out our Spring Cleaning post for even more lemon-infused ideas.

#3: Hydration

Drinking more water has a host of benefits, not to mention beautiful skin. Flavor your water with a drop of Lemon Vitality for a crisp and refreshing start to your day.

Note: Only use Young Living essential oils in glass or stainless steel containers.

#4: Flavor

Lemon Vitality was formulated as a dietary supplement. Translation: have fun with flavor! The possibilities are nearly endless. Try lemon in baking, yogurt and marinades. Start with a drop or two, again, Lemon Vitality is highly concentrated!

More Please!

Young Living Lemon Vitality works wonders a natural cleaner.

Oil of the Week: PanAway

Welcome to a brand new series from Tree of Life...drumroll...Oil of the Week. Each week (or so;), one of our team will share a few ways you can start using one of our favorite oils today. Like, now. Right after you read the post. Practical. Informational. Perfect? (We’re pumped.)

The Premium Starter Kit from Young Living includes Lavender, Peppermint Vitality, Lemon Vitality, Copaiba Vitality, Frankincense, Thieves Vitality, Purification, R.C., DiGize Vitality, PanAway & Stress Away.  

The Premium Starter Kit from Young Living includes Lavender, Peppermint Vitality, Lemon Vitality, Copaiba Vitality, Frankincense, Thieves Vitality, Purification, R.C., DiGize Vitality, PanAway & Stress Away.  

In a burst of logical inspiration, we decided to start at the beginning. Stay tuned as we go through each oil in the Premium Starter Kit. We hope that as you follow along, you’ll learn more and start using each oil in a way that easily fits into your daily life.

First up, PanAway by Alexis Peters. 

The PanAway Power Play

The last 4 years of my life have been a whirlwind. In February 2012, my husband and I were in a head-on car collision on the way to work. One long month in the hospital and 2 major surgeries later, I was on the road to recovery. It was the scariest, hardest, most full of love and support time of my life.

I’m thankful to report that the rest of the whirlwind has been a different journey altogether -- bringing two sweet boys into the world. I’ve come a long way since the wreck and surgeries, but the equation of spinal fusion, two pregnancies and caring for two small children leaves me with lots of aches by the end of each day. Not to mention my postpartum exercise program I’ve added back into my life for the last 3 months or so.

That’s why I’ve really connected with the blend PanAway. It’s designed to:

  • Support stressed muscles
  • Support healthy circulation
  • Help alleviate head tension
  • Prepare the body for a workout

Pick a bullet point, and I’m there at some point of the day. Find out how you can harness the power of PanAway in your own routine. But first, a little background.

What’s in PanAway, Anyway?

Think "Pain Away" when you see PanAway. This mix of Wintergreen, Helichrysum, Clove & Peppermint helps soothe minor muscle aches and head tension.  

Think "Pain Away" when you see PanAway. This mix of Wintergreen, Helichrysum, Clove & Peppermint helps soothe minor muscle aches and head tension.  

PanAway is an essential oil blend. So it’s a mix of several therapeutic-grade essential oils:

  • Wintergreen
  • Helichrysum
  • Clove
  • Peppermint

These oils work together to soothe minor aches and penetrate skin for optimal benefit.

Sensitive Skin Watch

PanAway can possibly cause skin sensitivity. Test PanAway on a small skin patch before massaging further. Dilute with your favorite massage oil or carrier oil (I’ve tried Jojoba with great success) to help lessen your chances of irritation and to stretch the blend if you want to massage a larger part of your body (e.g. your back).

Going Deeper: Perfect Pairings

Add more Helichrysum for a deep tissue massage. For additional bone support, more Wintergreen may be applied.

4 Ways to Use PanAway

#1: Muscle Out Minor Muscle Aches:

Option 1: Massage.

Step 1: Dilute 1-2 drops PanAway with your favorite carrier oil (coconut or olive oil are 2 other options).

Step 2: Massage directly on your stressed, tired muscles after a workout or a day chasing babies. 

Option 2: Warm Compress: 

For prolonged soothing, try a warm compress. Perfect end to a long day!

Step 1: Apply 1-3 drops of PanAway plus carrier oil on location or along spine.

Step 2: Cover with a hot, damp towel.

Step 3: Layer on a dry towel, leave for 10 minutes to half an hour.

#2: Circulation Support

Step 1: Dilute 1-2 drops PanAway with your favorite carrier oil.

Step 2: Massage on location in the direction of your heart (e.g. for legs, start at your ankle and work your way up).

#3: Head Tension

Work toward calm with these tips.

Option 1: Aromatically

Diffuse PanAway or apply 1 drop to hands, rub them together and inhale.

Option 2: On Location

Rub 1-2 drops diluted PanAway on temples and back of neck.

#4: Work Out Your Workout

Apply to the neck before your workout for invigorating respiratory and muscular support.  

More, Please!

And there you have it. The first installment of our Oil of the Week series. We love sharing and learning about the oils, so we’d love to hear from you! Do you have any tips or questions about PanAway? Leave them in the comments.

Graduation Inspiration: Leaving the Nest (with Oils!)

A year ago, my oldest son graduated from high school. For those of you who are parents, you both look forward to that day and dread it. You do everything in your power to help your child become the young adult he should be. You have laughed, cried, played, disciplined, and prayed with and for your child through the years.

Then, there comes a time to loosen the apron strings and let go.

Will He Be Ready to Leave the Nest?

Andrew is dyslexic. From his early elementary years when we were more or less told he was not college material to when he graduated in the top 8% of his high school class, you can imagine the blood, sweat, tears, and prayers that went on. We never told him in those struggling years that he wasn’t college material because we knew he was! We believed in him! 

There were years of struggling, years of tutoring, and years of hard work. His confidence grew. His abilities grew. Success was imminent! But with success comes leaving for college leaving the nest. Most of you probably haven’t gone through the exact scenario we have, but you have your own scenario when you wonder “will my child be ready to leave the nest?”

Time to Let Him Fly


Fast forward to letting to our baby bird fly. It was time for him to go to college. As a parent, you worry about your child’s Christian faith, about the friends he will make, about his study habits, and of course his health when he is away from home. That brings me to the purpose of a post on an essential oils blog — you were beginning to wonder, right?

A Premium Start(er Kit) 

Well, it was time to loosen the apron strings. It was time to have the faith that he would be okay leaving home for college. My husband and I equipped him the best we could through the years. We have prayed for our son often (as well as for our other kids who are younger than Andrew), and we will continue through his college years and beyond. 

We equipped him spiritually, mentally, physically, and emotionally. But, we also taught him how to use the oils to maintain and support his health. (We became an oily family just in the past few years around the time Andrew went into high school.) A physical, tangible item that could give me peace of mind as a mom was making sure that Andrew went off to college with a Premium Starter Kit. All of us parents need peace of mind, right?

Well, going off to college would test that — think of public bathrooms/showers that the dorm shares, think of living with a dorm full of kids who don’t always take care of themselves in a healthy and/or hygienic way, think about staying up late, think about being around classrooms full of students, think about cafeteria food that you know your child will not always make healthy choices from, and on and on.

So what is a mom supposed to do in a situation like that when she lives miles away from her child and does not “control” her child’s health environment? Send oils and Thieves cleaner, of course!

A Few College Pre-Requisites 

The new dorm essential: Thieves Cleaner!!

The new dorm essential: Thieves Cleaner!!

Andrew knows to use Thieves Vitality for immune support.  He knows to use Lavender Vitality and Peppermint Vitality for respiratory support.  He knows Purification helps him enjoy a hike outdoors annoyance free. (There are several great hiking areas within an hour of his college.) Andrew knows that Lavender is great for skin. He knows PanAway is great for massaging into his skin after playing intramural sports. He knows DiGize is good for digestive support.  

My point is Andrew knows how to use the oils. Equip your kids, even when they are young, with oily knowledge. They will then use them when they are leaving home, and you — the parent  can have such peace of mind!

Andrew had the knowledge needed to use the oils to maintain and support his health. He had the tools to do it — the oils. And, more importantly, he used them! I am happy to say that my son got through his first year of college with only a minor bump in the road now and then! As a mom, the oils gave me such peace of mind letting my baby bird fly.

Did I Let Him Fly?

So tell me, did I loosen the apron strings or not? The answer is YES to both! I did loosen them! He received a lot of independence! He was equipped spiritually, mentally, physically, and emotionally for leaving the nest.

He was ready to fly. I needed to let him go. It is the natural progression after all, right? But I also didn’t loosen the apron strings in a sense because I knew he had the oils and the knowledge and desire to use them, which gave me a sense of some control of his health! We moms need that, right?

Apron strings or no apron strings — who cares when they have a Premium Starter Kit in their hands!

The Perfect Graduation Gift 

It is graduation time for high school and college. A Premium Starter Kit makes a great gift! Let your baby birds fly with confidence! Support both the grad AND the parents during this exciting transition. If you have questions about getting started, let us help

Lindsey Barger (Young Living Executive Leader), Sabra Bland (Young Living Senior Star) and I (Dena Jones, Young Living Silver Leader) had the opportunity to attend the New Kit unveiling and we are excited to share all about:

  • the NEW Starter Kit

New Kit, New Look

Sleek new look, same world-leading quality.

Sleek new look, same world-leading quality.

First off, the new packaging is gorgeous! Young Living’s sleek new marketing – think Apple – matches our position as an essential oils world leader. I love the quote on the front of the box: "It's not a slogan—it's our calling."

A Peek Inside

When you open the box, you’ll see 10 oils on top. This part of the box is removable and has a display stand on the back, perfect for when you are sharing with friends, teaching a class or displaying them at a booth.

Underneath the oils, you’ll find:

  • 1 Stress Away (your 11th bonus oil)
  • 2 samples of Ningxia Red
  • 10 oil sample packets
  • 1 AromaGlide
  • 10 sample size oil bottles

I also love the new labels. The front of the bottle contains a see-through window, and an oil level line on the back so you can easily see how much oil is left in the bottle. The label also includes a barcode for shipping purposes.

New bottle front with see-through window.

New Kit, New Oils

The starter kit contains 3 new oils:

  • R.C.
  • DiGize
  • Copaiba

These replaced Joy, Citrus Fresh and Tee Tree.

Premium Starter Kit Oils                                            

Here are the 11 oils in the new starter kit. 

Stress Away

This blend is a natural solution created to combat normal stresses that creep into everyday life. Stress Away is the first product to contain the unique stress-relieving combination of lime and vanilla pure, therapeutic-grade essential oils. Stress Away also includes copaiba and lavender to reduce mental rigidity and restore equilibrium. Featuring powerful plant constituents, such as the cedrol found in cedarwood and the eugenol that occurs naturally in vanilla, Stress Away can help induce relaxation and reduce occasional nervous tension.


Known as the "Swiss Army Knife" of essential oils, Lavender is powerful and versatile. Its refreshing scent brings a sense of peace and harmony.


Peppermint's fresh, energizing aroma is highly regarded for supporting normal digestion, including promoting healthy intestinal function and gastrointestinal system comfort.


This species (Boswellia carterii) includes the naturally occurring constituent boswellic acid, and has a woodsy, warm, balsamic aroma. Diffuse Frankincense during meditation for grounding and purpose. Applying this oil topically may help smooth the appearance of healthy-looking skin, and is excellent to use for massage after activity.


Cold pressed from the rinds of fresh, ripe lemons, Lemon has a pleasant and cheerful aroma. It can lift spirits, soothe troubled or oily complexions, and aid in digestive wellness and weight management. It is also great for cleansing and removing sticky residue. Use it to flavor food or your favorite recipe.


Unlike any other essential oil, copaiba is tapped directly from the tree, rather than being distilled. It is a powerful essential oil from South America that has traditionally been used to aid digestion and support the body's natural response to injury or irritation. Copaiba contains the highest amounts of beta caryophyllene (55 percent) of any known essential oil.


Thieves essential oil blend was inspired by the legend of four 15th-century French thieves who formulated a special aromatic combination of clove, rosemary, and other botanicals to use while robbing the dead and dying. Young Living’s one-of-a-kind Thieves blend, crafted in the spirit of that legendary combination, can be found in all of our Thieves products. When taken internally, Thieves supports healthy immune function. It also includes Eucalyptus radiata essential oil, which may help maintain a healthy respiratory system.


A blend containing wintergreen, helichrysum, clove and peppermint essential oil, PanAway is often used for massage. Rub PanAway essential oil blend on muscles to help alleviate stressed muscles or other physical discomforts.


An invigorating blend that includes three varieties of eucalyptus, R.C. is comforting when applied to chest, neck and throat.


This blend combines citronella, lemongrass, rosemary, and myrtle. Purification gained popularity for its ability to neutralize odors, soothe insect bites, and its crisp, refreshing aroma that helps calm, uplift, and refresh the mind. It is also an excellent choice to soothe skin.


Combining powerful essential oils traditionally used for digestive support, this proprietary blend contains ginger, anise, fennel, peppermint, tarragon, lemongrass, patchouli, lemongrass, and juniper essential oils. Use DiGize with every meal, to support a daily wellness regimen.

New Kit, New Flex Oils

In addition to these 11 oils, Young Living has selected 5 "Flex Oils." These oils may be substituted in the event of sourcing constraints or supply considerations. This way the starter kit will always be available for purchase.

Here are the 5 Flex Oils:

Tee Tree

One of the gentlest essential oils available, it possesses powerful properties that are essential for the skin. It helps to moisturize and beautify the appearance of the skin.


AromaEase has a clean, nurturing scent that is calming and relaxing. It utilizes the powerful constituents found in ginger, cardamom, peppermint, fennel, and spearmint essential oils to help soothe occasional stress.


Lemongrass has a fresh, citrus-herb aroma traditionally used to support normal digestion. It is one of the most versatile essential oils. It can promote proper function of ligaments and tendons as well as proper lymph flow.

Citrus Fresh

Its sweet, fruity combination of orange, tangerine, lemon, mandarin, grapefruit and spearmint make Citrus Fresh the perfect uplifting aroma. It supports the immune system and overall health while bringing about a sense of well-being, creativity, and feelings of joy. It is also a great addition to your favorite beverage.


Orange is high in antioxidants and supports a healthy immune system for overall well-being. Its sunny, sweet, and fruity aroma lifts the spirits while calming the body and mind. It is also a wonderful way to enhance the flavor of many foods and drinks.

New Kit, New Love it? Share it! Program

The Love it? Share it! program is a great new addition to the kit. There are three simple steps to get ready, get S.E.T. and go with Young Living.

The R.C. Challenge: Comment for your Chance to WIN

Comment about R.C. for your chance to win your very own bottle!

Comment about R.C. for your chance to win your very own bottle!

Ed Dailey, RN, a featured speaker at the event, spoke about taking charge of our own health care. "Better health care, arises from better self care." He uses Young Living Essential Oils in integrated hospital care, and joked that he is in the "health" part of the health care field.

He gave all of us a challenge which I would like to pass on to you. He said that we should spend time on each oil and learn all that we can about it. Since we have 3 oils that are new to this kit as well as 3 flex oils that have not previously been featured in the starter kit, let's spend time over the next several months learning all that we can about these oils.

So here's the CHALLENGE: For the next month, learn all you can about R.C. What is in it, what is it used for? LEARN, LEARN LEARN! If you make a comment on the blog about R.C., you will be entered into a drawing to win a free bottle of R.C. Ready, go learn and comment!
